How to Make Bulletin Board Letters

Do you ever have a picture in your mind of exactly how you want your classroom to look?

Me too!

I was searching for the perfect letters for my classroom, but I could never find them! So I decided to make my own...and guess what?

Making your own giant letters is EASY!

And you just need a regular printer and black ink!


Are you ready to give it a try?

Let me walk you through the steps:

1. Open PowerPoint on your computer

2. Insert a text box and choose a chunky font
      Try: KG Second Chances Solid 

3. Type just one or two letters in the box 

4. Change the text size so the letters to fill the page. This will be different for some letters. For example, W is a very wide letter and L is very narrow- just experiment to see what fits

5. Format your letters so they have "no text fill" and black "text outline"
6. Duplicate your page so you can make more letters!

You can print your letters on card stock or colored paper, but I wanted the designs I found in the scrapbook paper section.

I cut down the scrapbook paper to be 8.5 x 11 to fit into my printer. Then I printed just like I would on regular printer paper. 


After printing, I cut out the centers of my letters. You can skip that step if the centers don't bother you! Then I just laminated them and trimmed around the edges. 


I told you it was easy!


Want to save some time? 

I already created a set of CAPITAL and lowercase letters for A-Z.  Just print the pages you need!

Make sure you pin this image so you don't forget the steps!

These letters are perfect for classroom displays, quotes, and bulletin boards! Please share your ideas for using these letters in the comments!

  10. This is a fantastic idea. I am a first year teacher and love collecting all these new ideas. By chance, do you know what size font you used? I see you got about six letters per page, but I can't begin to guess what size they are. Thanks!

    1. Hi Meghann,
      I wish I knew this tip as a new teacher! It's perfect for making exactly what you want without buying lots of extra letters you don't need! The size of the font really depends on which font you choose and how big you want the letters. I just tried different sizes and then kept checking the page view to see how big they would print. Best wishes for your first year teaching!

    1. I used PowerPoint to make my letters. To outline the them, you type the letters you need. Then highlight the letters and left click on them. Select "Format Text Effects" and then "Text Outline." You can choose the outline color you want the line to be. Then select "Text Fill" and choose "no fill."

  33. Spartan Keto This is one of the most common weight loss myths out there. It is illogical to think that your health and weight are going to be in balance if your nutrition consists mainly of twinkies, chips, and donuts. Sure you can burn it off by exercising, but most people whose diet consists of mainly junk food are probably not disciplined enough to stick to a workout routine. I do know a few people who, from the outside, look like they are in good shape, because they are not "fat, but who have high cholesterol.

  34. Ultimate Keto Boost Last, and potentially more profitable for the weight loss industry, are devices, supplements and other products intended to produce weight loss. These include diet pills, natural weight loss supplements containing acai, African mango and a range of other substances, plus belts and other devices. The basic principle behind some of these products has been shown to help with reduction when it's combined with other mainstream methods, but the majority of diet pills and other products don't do much to help. They can even be harmful to your health.

  41. Megaplex Keto Blend Taking into account the aforementioned points, it is unfortunate to note that there are actually some weight loss programs that in an attempt to show prompt results incorporate the use of diuretics to give the illusion of weight loss. Diuretics, both drugs and diuretic herbs, promote body water loss through the kidneys. Apart from these diet programs leading to body water loss which easily shows up on the bathroom, the dieter risks getting dehydrated.

The proponents of male enhancement, on the other hand, offer the alternative view that while sex for women might be more of an emotional affair, it does still have a physical component, which a man can only ignore at the risk of being considered a 'wimp' - hence the need for male
